Sarah and the media

I’ve been debating about writing this blog. But I figured what the heck.

 

I’m at a loss about this circle of protect Sarah Palin is getting from appearing on live interview shows.

 

I don’t get it.

 

Is there something to hide?

 

Is the party embarrassed by her?

 

Was she a late night mistake?

 

We hear the criticism that the media is picking on her and asking her difficult questions.

 

Come on.

 

We’re supposed to be asking her questions. Questions that shows the electorate what she’s about.

 

I just saw Katie’s interview where she asks Palin what newspaper she reads. Palin doesn’t answer except to say she reads what’s in front of her. What? In front of her?

 

Katie very politely asks for specifics. Then another Palinesque vague answer.

 

Katie tries again. Still no answer on what she reads.

 

Then various bloggers and columnists say Katie picked on her. How? By asking her what she reads?

 

I’m rather disturbed that someone who is 72 years old away from running this country can’t answer a question. No matter who or what you support you should also be disturbed.

 

Our role is to uncover, reveal and discover what we can about our candidates. I don’t care about her private life. I do care about knowing her views, opinions and positions on critical issues like the economy, foreign policy and the like.

 

Oh, and we should be going equally hard after Joe Bidden. What was he thinking with his Hilary comment?

 

How come the candidates have been a little obtuse on the bail out? But I feel McCain, Obama and Bidden know what the bail out means.

 

I’m worried when we say bailout to Sarah, she’s think bailing out the boat.

 

Dear Republican Party:

 

Let Sarah be Sarah. Let’s see her on the Sunday morning talk shows. Live.

    Steve, are you new to the game of politico? Do you read or follow the way the media, including so called comedians, lampoon Palin for being from where she is? I think the displeasure among non liberals is that you agenda driven media types only “try” to be tough on select individuals. Everything I have learned about Obama, I have had to research myself because you don’t endeavor to be journalists and maintain objectivity. When media interviews a Dem it’s like a love fest all giggly and cute. When it is a repub or liberatarian it’s HARD HITTING AND TOUGH. Don’t you think people see that?

    One more thing, Democrat Party: Let Barack be Barack unfiltered.
